An inventory of the reptiles and amphibians of Boy Scout Camp Linwood-Hayne, Richmond County, Georgia, was compiled over a period of three years (2003-2005). Interpretation of range maps indicated that a total of 102 species could possibly occur on the property. State records indicate that a total of 98 species are docu­mented in Richmond County. Sixty-two species were recorded from a combination of passive sampling traps, hand-captures, sightings, egg masses, and vocalizations. This study demonstrates that student-led opportunistic surveys can be successful and cost effective vehicles for creating baseline inventories of small areas.
